Brits love shopping. Millions of people hit the shops every single week, whether online or on the high street – and for the first time since the recession hit in 2008, the typical spend on clothing and footwear has increased.
According to official Office for National Statistics figures, households now spend £23.40 per week on clothing and footwear – up by £1.50 since 2011. The growing economy means people have more money in their pockets and are willing to splash their cash – as evidenced by the higher average weekly spend.
What’s more, technology seems to be playing a role in how people spend as 12% of consumers now buy their clothes and shoes online - with Germany and Sweden being the only countries in the world to have more.

While it’s good to have a positive outlook, My Favourite Voucher Codes warns that overspending could still put shoppers in financial trouble. However, shopping online and using voucher codes is one way for people to get the most for their money.Julian House, founder of www.myfavouritevouchercodes.co.uk said that, “It’s great that people in the UK have more money to spend on clothing and footwear, but we still want shoppers to get better value for money. Our voucher codes help cut the cost of shopping and delivery charges – as well as doing a good deed at the same time.”
My Favourite Voucher Codes is a voucher code website with a difference. Not only does it help shoppers save money by offering exclusive deals and discounts, but it helps charities too. For every £1 net profit the website makes, it donates 20p to charity – with users voting for a different charity each month.
